How To Not Only Survive Winter In Nebraska … But Love It Too
In Nebraska, where the winters can be long and harsh, we often think of the winter months as a time to get through rather than a time to relish. Some people even develop Seasonal Affective Disorder, which can lead to low energy and depression. Instead of just waiting for winter to be over, here are a few ways to make the most of the colder months.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
The key to loving winter is to stay within your level of cold tolerance. Can’t stand getting a little chilly? Light up that fireplace and kick back with a good book. If you’re the type to wear shorts in a blizzard, head on outside for a snowman building contest with the local kids. We might be in for a long winter (or not – it’s Nebraska. Who knows?) so we might as well make the most of it! What do you do to make your winters brighter? Let us know in the comments!
